Bangkok Guitar Fiesta next weekend


The Bangkok Guitar Fiesta 2011 will showcase a high level cultural experience and provide the audiences with guitar superstars of Jazz • Classical • Flamenco in concerts and workshops.  Presented by AMI Events, the event will take place from 25 to 27 February 2011 at the Small Hall of the Thailand Cultural Centre. 

The event is a high profile annual weekend festival presenting the world’s leading guitar artists; Martin Taylor (U.K.), The Grigoryan Brothers – Slava and Leonard (Australia), and Victor Monge Serranito Quartet (Spain).  The three artists will share with everyone their virtuosity, musicianship and creativity in concerts and workshops.

Due to his invaluable experience as festival director of previous international events such as the Bangkok International Guitar Festival & Series, the Thailand Festival of the Arts, the Bangkok International Showcase Series and the Markgrafler Gitarrentage in Germany, the world renowned German-Thai guitar virtuoso Hucky Eichelmann has been chosen as the Artistic Director of this outstanding world-class event.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to present the incredible talent of some of the world’s best and most established guitarists and it’s a unique chance for Thai audiences to closely experience the guitar greats they have been admiring from afar.  The guitar is perhaps the most popular and versatile instrument on earth, sounding authentic in basically every musical style and form, ranging from Flamenco to Classics, from Jazz and Rock to Latin and Fingerstyle rhythms.

“I’m excited to be able to bring together these musicians for everyone to enjoy and to further understand the magic of this wonderful and fascinating instrument.” says Eichelmann.

The event was initiated and is being organized by AMI Events, with the aim to present world class guitar culture and entertainment as well as prime musical education to help develop the Thai music scene.
